The Age of Blockbuster Battles

The “Transformers: (living in the) Age of Extinction” are ironically primed for summer survival, ready to meet, greet and then beat the undercover cops, over-thinking men, animated species, Disney diva and Jersey chorus. They naturally expect their character-driven comrades to lag far behind them in the box-office line while they transform our big-screen society. Will that big-screen transformation cause the troublesome crew partying on the corner of “22 Jump Street” to take a flying leap?
Perhaps our intellectual movie types will “Think Like a Man Too” savvy to be taken in by giant robots and never-ending mechanical battles. Then we have our boundless animated greats, who are always thinking big. Have they learned “How to Train Your Dragon 2” take on a powerful toy franchise?
Since moviegoers can’t live on the fate of Autobots and Decepticons alone, those with a song in their heart may prefer a visit with the “Jersey Boys” after a stop-over in the kingdom containing that maddening “Maleficent.”
Happily, we’re living in the Age of Story Endurance, where “They Came Together,” our stalwart stars (some in limited release), to tell a tale with limitless, sequel possibilities.
Which ageless anecdote will you choose this weekend?
